Priced per metre

Wire Check is a goldwork wire which is made of a triangular shaped coil of fine wire - there is a hole through the centre.  The triangular shape acts like the facets on a gemstone to reflect light in different directions, making it shimmer.  This thread is delicate until it is stitched down.

Use Wire Check by stitching through the hollow centre, like you would apply a bead.  Use doubled thread with a good coat of beeswax.

No.6 is the size I use for most beginner and intermediate kits, a size 9 embroidery needle passes easily through it.  No.8 is smaller, a size 10 or 12 embroidery needle is best.
